3.43/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden straw color with a one finger white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving some spotty foam on the surface of the brew and a decent lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is a mix of some grainy wheat and bread smells and a bit of of a lemon and grass aroma. Mixed with these aromas is a little bit of caramel and an orange sweetness giving the brew an overall aroma that is of a slightly grainy bready smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a grainy wheat and lightly sweetened taste of a citrus nature of lemon and orange. The sweetness begins fading with the flavor taking on a slightly more bitter and sour flavor as the taste moves on. Other grassy flavors then come to the tongue with a little bit of the sweetness of caramel coming back to the tongue, leaving a decently wheaty taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are rather appropriate for the style and make for an easy drinking brew overall.

Overall – A decent brew but more summer like then fall like overall. Rather refreshing wheat beer with a decent sweetness but yet still crispness.

Slightly hazy orange with barely a white head.
Some caramel and apple aromas.
Taste the hops and wheat of the beer, along with the caramel and fruit.
Mouthfeel is alright except for a peculiar aftertaste.
Overall this beer is slightly under the mark of okay.

A - A hazy orange color with just a 1/4 of head.
S - Well wheat is predominant but I do smell some citrus hop goodness and malts.
T - Not that bad has a very balanced hop profile, easy drinking wheat flavor and a nice smooth finish. Maybe it's because they labeled it as a "harvest ale" and everyone expected an uber hop experience idk.
M -Light to medium, rather smooth easy to drink.

Overall it's actually very similar to the hoppy lager in that it does have a decent amount of hops and a smooth taste. Yep.

Pulled out of the fall 12 pack. Overall, it's a gently hoppy wheat beer with a mild, floral melon hop taste and crisp citrus kiss in the finish. It's very drinkable, and I wish they knocked down the ABV a bit to make a better session beer. A little research shows this is a Sorachi Ace ale. While I certainly wouldn't mind a bigger hops character, but it's a fine beer and I'll be drinking the other from this mixed box.
